Put beeswax, about 1/2 pound into a double boiler and let it melt. Add olive oil, I use about 1 1/2 cup to start and reheat. Now, add some essential oils for smell if you want to. Let this cool and check to see if its to hard. If it is, reheat it and add more olive oil. Pour into a jar and put a lid on it. We milk all year around. Goats, by hand and our skin doesn't chap or peel. It's cheap and easy to make.
